Tax bills are mailed once a year in mid-April with both installment remittance slips included. Payments must be received or federally post-marked by the deadline to avoid penalties.
Beginning in 2018 we no longer send return envelopes with the tax mailing. More and more taxpayers are paying online and we have depleted our inventory. What little inventory remains can be handed out at the counter for those who would like to have some on hand for future payments.
Payments are considered timely if:
Received in the Treasurer's office by closing on the deadline date.
Received in the drop box located downtown at 3rd Street and Columbia Street by midnight on the deadline date.
Received by Staley Credit Union, 1632 Union Street, Lafayette, by closing on the deadline date.
Federally postmarked by deadline (meter dates are NOT acceptable)
Address: Tippecanoe County Treasurer

Online Payments - Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover credit cards, debit cards, and electronic checks (e-checks) may be used to make tax payments by Internet only - not via mail. A convenience fee will be added by the processor based on the method of payment. (Pay your property taxes online)
Tippecanoe County no longer offers the ACH (Automatic Debit of Account) program. Most financial institutions offer online-bill-pay to their members. If you are interested in paying your property taxes via an online-bill-pay, you will need to contact your financial institution to inquire if they offer this service
